2011 Yarrabank Cuvee Brut

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
A full yellow hue with copper tints introduces a cuvee of surprising development for fruit sourced largely in the Upper Yarra Valley in the cool '11 vintage. It's well into the secondary phase of its life, already toasty, biscuity, spicy and honeyed, and while it's reached this point faster than expected, it's otherwise a compelling, mature Yarra style.

Campbell Mattinson (2011 Vintage) says
53% chardonnay, 47% pinot noir. None of it goes through mlf. 15% of it spends time in 5500 litre oak. It’s a classy style of sparkling wine. A beautiful style. It’s characterised by its elegance and by its length. Fresh biscuity flavours, some steel, some nectarine and subtle white peach. Bead is ultra fine and the flavours extend long through the mouth. Quite entrancing.
